Well... as this email bug means every uploader's email address is visible, any illegal videos might actually be a goldmine for law enforcement investigators.

Well, yes, I'm sure law enforcement might have an easier time catching illegal file sharers, but this also makes it easier for spammers and other con artists to do their job too. Do you want to have your inbox filled with spam or worse? Not me.

Well I was thinking more about what FP said, if there really are pro-terrorism videos on IA then the police will love the fact that they can see all the uploaders' addresses.

It's funny actually, a while ago IA apparently fought a legal battle not to reveal a single user's address to law enforcement authorities, but now they've revealed EVERYONE'S address to EVERYONE. :-)

I think I saw something mentioned in IA's privacy policy where, in certain situations, they would HAVE to reveal e-mail addresses to law enforcement on certain occasions. That doesn't apply to this situation, though. If they are going to make everyone's e-mail adresses available to everybody, why have a privacy policy?
